in General Discussion edited January 2014
Apple on Thursday released an update containing bug and security fixes for its Safari Web browser, with version 5.0.3 for Windows, Mac OS X Leopard and Snow Leopard, and 4.1.3 for Mac users running Tiger.



Safari 5.0.3 is available direct from Apple for Mac OS X 10.5.8 or later and Windows XP, Vista and Windows 7. Tiger users must be running Mac oS X 10.4.11 for Safari 4.1.2.



For both Mac and Windows users, the update fixes an issue that could prevent users from submitting web forms. It also establishes an encrypted, authenticated connection to the Safari Extensions Gallery.



The latest version of Safari 5 for Mac also fixes an issue that could cause Web content to display incorrectly when viewing a Google Image result with Flash 10.1 installed.



Other fixes, according to Apple, include:

More accurate Top Hit results in the Address Field

More accurate results in Top Sites

More reliable pop-up blocking

Improved stability when typing into search and text input fields on www.netflix.com and www.facebook.com

Improved stability when using JavaScript-intensive extensions

Improved stability when using VoiceOver with Safari

Safari 5 was released in June, bringing sandboxed extensions, as well as expanded HTML5 support. It also added the ability to make Microsoft Bing the default search engine.

    At least Safari is sna... No! I can't say it



    Correction: This is Acrobat not Flash. Seriously though as far as I can tell still no (correction) Acrobat Plug-in 64 bit so Safari still has to be run in 32 bit mode.

    I still get Plug in failures with Flash on the BBC web site, only started when 10.6.5 was released.

    not sure if i understand what you are saying. Safari 5 is a 64 bit process. Flash is run separately on its own process, so might be 32 bits (i never checked that up).



    Just out of curiosity, does this update require a restart?

    Correction: This is for Acrobat (which maybe related to issues on BEEB but it's not Flash per se .. Sorry.) This may be the problem. Have you tried running Safari in 32 bit mode? Flash for Mac is still only 32 bit and it simply doesn't work correctly in Safari in 64 bit. To change Safari (in case you didn't know) quit it and find the original icon, get info and check the box next to "Open in 32-bit mode". Then restart Safari. Hopefully Flash will now work (well as well as it can lol).



    Hope this helps

    CORRECTION: This is related to Adobe Acrobat NOT flash. My Bad. First part was an old joke second part is my error, it's Acrobat Plug-In 32 bit does have some issues in Safari 64 bit not Flash.. Yes it requires a restart, on my Macs at least.

    something is probably wrong with your installment. Flash is a pig, and it does malfunction sometimes but i wouldn't go that far as saying it doesn't work correctly.



    Flash is run in a separate process, so it doesn't matter if you start Safari in 32 or 64. It should just work. (I believe although some expert developer can clarify that for you) If you are having problems with it try reinstall flash from the adobe site. or check if any extensions are messing with it. But 32 and 64 bits is not the culprit here.

    We are talking about Flash right? Not PDFs? The link you've posted is about the pdf plugin for safari from acrobat reader (which by the way is not only not needed but something seriously to avoid installing).

    I agree on the don't install normally, except now at last we can access Florida MLS via a VNC app on a Mac no Parallels required. However it didn't work on many forms. Eventually we discovered it won't work without the damned plug-in and hence I found out (after weeks of trying to figure this out) what was wrong ... the 32 bit plug-in. It was Adobe (yet again!).



    So someone out there may have some issues like that and it's worth knowing, sorry for off topic posting BTW. I agree otherwise, don't use it!



    p.s. not seeing your attached image.

    I do as well. First thing I checked was BBC and first video clip I trip caused a failure and its very easy to recreate.



    Each time a report goes to Apple so maybe they will fix it.



    Am wondering if its worth reinstalling Flash or if there s a new verson for 10.6.5 ??

    Not sure this should help but changing Safari to 32 bit mode via Get Info seems to have cured the constant crash message on the BBC web site (and others ) when they use Flash.

    What version of Flash are you using? I am using 10.6.5 and the latest Adobe Flash Player square beta with no issues. I'll do some more testing when I get home.

    No issues here at all with flash - I don't suppose you're using a beta version of the plug-in at the moment are you? I know how users like to be 'ahead of the game'. The current 'stable' version is 10.1.102.64.

    I have to disagree on that one. There are many websites that require the Acrobat Reader plugin instead of Preview to be used effectively.
